Patriot’s Text Marketing platform is loaded with features to create custom SMS Marketing campaigns to fit your needs. Whether you’re looking for a one-and-done campaign, something more sustainable or a phone-based integration, we have the tools to get it done.
Patriot’s Text Marketing platform supports both SMS and MMS message types. If you’re looking to send simple text, then SMS should cover your needs. However, if you’re looking to jazz up your messaging, you might want to look at MMS texting. MMS messages allow you to send multimedia-based items; such as pictures or videos.
Patriot can support as many keywords as you need – each one customized for a specific use. Coupon requests, subscription requests, interactive games and more – keywords are a great way to engage your customers.
Capacity is never a concern with our platform. We’re prepared to take on whatever you throw at us: 1,000, 100,000, 1,000,000 – we can handle it!
In addition to our robust summary-level reports, Patriot can provide detail reporting to help build your CRM system. Matching texts back to your customer records provides valuable historical information to improve your data.
To ensure your Text Marketing campaign meets carrier requirements and adheres to other applicable laws, we follow industry standards to support Opt-out and Info messaging. All custom text solutions must recognize keywords HELP and STOP.
We can provide basic examples of how each keyword should be handled or you can customize the handling as needed.
Based on your campaign needs, Patriot can provide either Short Codes or Long Codes.
Short codes are 5-6 digit codes designed to send and receive text messages. All Short Codes are pre-approved by carriers for high volume campaigns. Long Codes look like normal 10-digit phone numbers and operate the same way as Short Codes and are tailored for lower volume campaigns.
